Carson City Real Estate - Buyer or Seller Market?
The Carson City real estate market currently has 11.7 months of inventory - up from 8.6 months of inventory one year ago - this represents a stronger buyer's market and with the depressed number of Carson City homes sold, it will take quite a while to work down the inventory levels. One advantage a home seller has in Carson City is there are very few (and none are large scale) new home developments to compete with so this could come into line much faster than markets like Dayton, Sparks, or Fernley due to the new home construction in those markets.
